David and Matt have reconnected 

By 2011 they had stopped speaking completely. Matt even revealed in his biography that there was friction between them and that they were "often at loggerheads." Thankfully, in June, David revealed to The Sun that he and Matt had started speaking again.

The father-of-one told the publication that: "It has been great seeing much more of Matt. He is spending more time in the UK, so it has been a lot easier to see each other."
